Publisher's Summary

After gaining valuable experience as an aide to Governor Lord Horatio Hornblower, William Brewer is rewarded with a posting as first lieutenant on the frigate HMS Defiant, bound for American waters. Early in their travels, it seems as though Brewer’s greatest challenge will be evading the wrath of a tyrannical captain who has taken an active dislike to him. But when a hurricane sweeps away the captain, the young lieutenant is forced to assume command of the damaged ship, and a crew suffering from low morale.

Brewer reports their condition to Admiral Hornblower, who orders them into the Caribbean to destroy a nest of pirates hidden among the numerous islands. Luring the pirates out of their coastal lairs will be difficult enough; fighting them at sea could bring disaster to the entire operation. For the Defiant to succeed, Brewer must rely on his wits, his training, and his ability to shape a once-ragged crew into a coherent fighting force.

Outstanding

Definite Theatre of the Mind.
With Nigel's wonderful narration, the authentic sound effects and music, this production is just like a blockbuster feature film.
The characterisations are very believable. This is an outstanding production.

Immersive Adventure On The High Seas.

A great insight into life aboard a British sailing ship of the line during peacetime following the Napoleonic wars. We follow the adventures of William Brewer as he crosses the Atlantic Ocean to America and then down to the Carribbean. There is internal conflict, secrets, lies, naval battles and admiralty politics. This is a very well written and narrated novel. I think the sound effects add to the atmosphere created especially in the battle scenes. A very enjoyable listening experience with a wonderful array of characters.

Brewer's Luck

The story of this audio book is about the character of the men and their ability to lead. A very positive and optimistic story. Not very realistic.
